Borresteijn (4620) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
75cl Bottle, tfs JulienHuxley! Black colour, short-lived brown head. Aroma of hard-roasted malts, ash, currants, blackberries, chocolate, some coffee. Flavour is tart from both the black malts and berries, light fruity, ash, chocolate, bitter finish. Almost full-bodied. Not easy to drink. Struise doesn’t do it for me anymore. Underwhelming, over-priced.

caesar (5046) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2014
Bottled thx to Julien @ Julien’s neighbour is a metalhead according to Rob-tasting, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of lots of blackberries, blackcurrant, roasted malts, spicy yeast esters. Quite bitter in taste mostly from the malts and the berries, quite fruity as well. Heavy on the stomach. Ok stuff, but blackberries dont seem to be my favorite.

Bottle. Deep black pour with thin brown foam. Aroma is fruity, tons of berry aromas, blackberry, raisin, dark chocolate, light woody aromas. Taste is sweet, winey, very fruity, chocolate-berry mix, light alcohol. Palate is (med)rich and creamy, had thicker but this did the trick. Not the best variant of Black damnation, but still quite nice.

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours dark brn/blk with a transient, fizzy, tan head. Aroma is hugely dark treacle, dark fruit and suggesting cola. Med body. Flavor is aroma with coffee and an emphasis on the chocolate. Finish is dark malt with complex flavor accents. Delicious.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours near black with a transient tan head and a sweet vanilla and treacle aroma. There is a carbonated dark molasses flavor with a bitter anise finish. Lots of flavor.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Dark oily obsidian pour with a creamy latte pour. Dusty cocoa, vanilla, charcoal, toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, and a hint of alcohol. All of the parts are better than the sum...a really rock solid beer but not in the realm of world class.

JefVerstraete (1253) - BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from De Hopduvel. Beautiful black colour, dark brown foam. Medium carbonation. Full body. Complex aroma of roasted malts and coffee with remarkable fruitiness (berries, peach). Well balanced, sweet and heavy bitter aftertaste. Good!
